Netflix has released an official teaser trailer for TheProm, based on Matthew Sklar’s Broadway musical of the same name.
This looks like an expensive version of High School Musical. I joke of course, but seriously it does. But High School Musical can’t land that cast. Meryl Streep,James Corden, Keegen-MichaelKey, and Nicole Kidman; wowza!
I probably wouldn’t watch this just because it doesn’t look like it would interest me much, but I have a girlfriend who loves musicals, so I’ll probably see this the day it drops on Netflix.
Dee Dee Allen (three-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep) and Barry Glickman (Tony Award winner James Corden) are New York City stage stars with a crisis on their hands: their expensive new Broadway show is a major flop that has suddenly flatlined their careers. Meanwhile, in small-town Indiana, high school student Emma Nolan (newcomer Jo Ellen Pellman) is experiencing a very different kind of heartbreak: despite the support of the high school principal (Keegan-Michael Key), the head of the PTA (Kerry Washington) has banned her from attending the prom with her girlfriend, Alyssa (Ariana DeBose). When Dee Dee and Barry decide that Emma’s predicament is the perfect cause to help resurrect their public images, they hit the road with Angie (Academy Award winner Nicole Kidman) and Trent (Andrew Rannells), another pair of cynical actors looking for a professional lift. But when their self-absorbed celebrity activism unexpectedly backfires, the foursome find their own lives upended as they rally to give Emma a night where she can truly celebrate who she is.
The Prom hits limited theaters and Netflix December 11, 2020.
